Today’s Tidbit | William Bradford and Alice Carpenter Southworth Wedding

This Saturday, August 14th, Plimoth Plantation will re-enact the August 14, 1623 wedding of Governor William Bradford and Alice Carpenter Southworth. William’s first wife, Dorothy May, drowned while the Mayflower was anchored in Provincetown Harbor in 1620. Alice came to Plymouth aboard the Anne in July 1623, following the death of her first husband, Edward Southworth. William and Alice are my 9th great grandparents.

  2. TOO COOL! Are you going to be there David? I think if I had ancestors this “historic” that they were going to re-enact their wedding I would make an effort to attend.. what a great thing!

  3. Wow, just ran across this. Would be cool to have gone to the reinactment. Is this a familiy affair? I am a decendent of one of Alice Carpenter Southworth’s first two sons before she left the England and married William Bradford.
